      Australian Visa Timelines Tracker website now live   19/10/17

      If you’re applying for an Australian visa, you want to know how long it’s going to take to be granted. This is understandable as you’re eager to start your new life in Australia. Having such information will also allow you to get on with other crucial steps in the immigration process. That's why, after feedback from our members,  we've launched our Australian Visa Timelines Tracker https://ww.australia-visa-timelines.com The tracker allows you to enter key dates about your visa application and compare them in tabular format with other applicants around the globe. You can look at who’s applied for the same visa as you, the same dates as you, from the same country, occupation etc. This will allow you obtain greater insight into the likely time is will take for your visa to be granted. We've still a couple of changes to make over the next couple of weeks, but the site is now online and available for use.

  1. Thanks so much for your help. We checked the calculator and had a brief chat with an 'expert' who confirmed that we would have the points to move due to my husbands job. We travelled around Oz 10 years so know we don't won't to be in the heart of the city with too much hustle and bustle but equally don't won't to be totally out of touch. It's so difficult to actually pin point the exact location to move to. With young kids the work life balance and health care is top priority. Walking distance to a beach would be an added bonus as would new experiences etc.
  2. We are at the early stages of planning so advice on where the place to go is welcomed. We would move to where the work is and good schools as have two children at primary school. It has been suggested that we can plan ourselves others have said use a specialist.we are looking to go to a exhibition about moving to oz soon. It's quite over whelming and not sure how to start?
  3. What's the reality of finding carpentry work likely to be? Also how much better/worse off is the difference in wage v living compared to south coast England?
